People struggling with addiction can find help and hope to gain the the Victory over substance abuse. At the Outreach Community Center sobriety becomes a reality for anyone who wants to turn their life around and put drugs behind them forever.

A 12-Step Journey to Freedom

on't give up! Addiction can be a heart-breaking problem, and can seem to conquer even the best of us. However, if you’re struggling with addiction the Outreach Community Center's 12 step sobriety recovery program offers an excellent place to begin your journey toward physical, spiritual and emotional healing. The program works because you'll take a series of actions that build on one another which help you develop sobriety and recovery habits that will allow you go on to lead a better, happier and more productive life. You’ll be able to see the problem for what it is, give up the struggle and learn to abstain from self-destructive behavior.

One of the great things about the 12 step sobriety program is that you’ll find lots of support within the community. Since one of the steps in the program teaches attendees to help other people once they have been helped, it won't be hard to find program graduates, who are successfully maintaining their sobriety, and know the challenges you face. They’ll know how to support and incourage you, so that you can overcome temptation, remain sober and go on with your life.

The 12 Steps:
  • 1. We admitted we were powerless over our addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable.

  • 2. Came to believe that God, a Power greater than ourselves, could restore us to sanity.

  • 3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

  • 4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

  • 5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

  • 6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

  • 7. Humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.

  • 8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

  • 9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

  • 10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

  • 11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

  • 12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

You don’t have to go it alone. In fact, it’s better if you don’t! And fortunately, the very nature of the 12th step means that once you have made the decision to conquer your addiction through this process, you become a member of a community of people who are valiently pursuing a life free from drugs and alcohol. History has proven over and over again that there is strength in numbers and that when people are united in a single purpose they become invicible. Further more, when people are united in faith and in prayer, they can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens them. Here at the Outreach Community Center, the tough love and compassionate empathy you need is readily available. There is some one here to walk with you one step at a time.

Victory is Obtainable! We have seen thousands of people succeed at doing the very thing you are are trying to do. With perserverance you CAN win.

Overcoming addiction is no small task. I've been there and can say with no uncertainty that it is achievable. And the sense of accomplishment that comes with winning the battle can't be matched. There is overwhelming pride in being able to say "I'm clean!"

Things are so much different in my life now. I am a productive member of society as opposed to one feeding off of it. I owe so much to God and what I have learned at the Outreach Community Center.
